Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Shang Baolin was a farmer at Vegetable Garden Village, Chengguan Town, Pingdu City, Shandong Province. He began practicing Falun Dafa in late October of 1998. It seemed that he had become a completely different person since practicing Falun Gong, and his family life also became harmonious. Having witnessed the big changes in her husband, Ms. Shang's wife also started practicing Falun Gong.
At midnight on September 28, 2002, over ten policemen broke into Shang Baolin's home and threatened him, trying to force him to tell them the whereabouts of his wife. They told him that if he refused, they would arrest him and bring him to the police station to beat him. Shang Baolin was so frightened that his heart began racing and his face turned pale. Finally, under severe pressure he told the police his wife's location at her parents' house. After the police left, Shang Baolin phoned his wife and warned her to hide. His wife noticed that his voice had changed and he had no energy to speak. On October 10, 2002, Shang Baolin collapsed suddenly and died. At age 39, he left this world with a frightened expression on his face.
